Climate Vulnerability Assessment Africa

Values-based Climate Change Risk Assessment: Piloting the Climate Vulnerability Index for Cultural Heritage in Africa

In many regions of Africa, the risks from climate change are pronounced as temperature increases in these regions are projected to be higher than the global mean increase. Whether and how those who care for cultural heritage respond to these threats has profound implications for the wider cultural and development of many countries. The CVI Africa Project improve preparedness measures for African cultural heritage sites and communities by investigating the time-critical need to put cultural heritage onto a new pathway for longer term resilience-building and change management processes in the light of the current and anticipated impacts of climate change and natural disasters.

Climate Vulnerability Training

The CVI Africa Project is providing foundational training to a cohort of six African heritage professionals in climate change vulnerability assessments of cultural heritage sites using both remote learning techniques and hands-on workshops at two World Heritage Sites

A call for participants will be circulated following the project launch in December. Biographies of selected participants will be posted on the website once training starts.
